Kindergarten have been studying force and motion or pushes and pulls. The children first moved a friend on a swing by either pushing or pulling. They then used a model of a swing in the classroom to discover how different pushes changed the motion of the swing.
During PE, the class used force to beat Mr. Crabtree in a game of tug of war.
Next, the children learned about gravity as a force. Using different sized vehicles the class experimented how vehicles go down a ramp with the pull of gravity.
Finally, the class learned about wind as a force. With a straw, the children used the force of wind to create movement with a variety of objects.
